Moguchuu? I Barely Know You!

Yaokin Moguchuu Cola  - Rocket Fizz $1.49
These came from Rocket Fizz, which is a nifty chain of novelty shops that sell candies, wacky gifts, and tons of weird sodas. In fact, I think they carry pretty much every novelty soda there is, from Buffalo Wing to Apple Pie, to Grass. I was very temoted to get a bunch of weird drinks but, as fun as that is, weird sodas usually aren't that good. They're great for a, "wow! That was weird," moment, but after the initial novelty wears off, the drinks are rarely worth repurchasing. So, I opted for some quirky snacks instead.
I can barely keep my eyes open ('cause I'm getting old dying) so let's get right into this quickie review!

I've Got Grape News! (Seriously)

Senjaku Pione Grape Gummies  - ???
No need to hear it through the grape vine, I'm engaged! 
My boyfriend fiancĂ© whom you may remember from such posts as The Week My Boyfriend Went Keto, or driving me crazy at the end of THIS youtube video, proposed to me on Valentine's Day inside the Dunkin' Donuts from our very first date. (This donut review is actually from that date!)
After 3+ years of having him try all kinds of weird foods, it seems he's in it for the long haul. We've got a lot of planning ahead of us, but in the meantime....let's eat some candy!

La la la la Lava Cake, I'd love to Eat You Up! - Lava Cake Kisses (& Recipe Review)

Lava Cake Kisses - Target
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! (At the stroke of midnight, be sure to run out there and scoop up all the clearance candy!) 
To celebrate this day of candy consumption (and love), I've doubled down on the content. I'll be reviewing the candy as well as the recipe for lava cakes included on the bag. Will this post end up being twice as nice? Or double the disappointment?

Thanks, I Hate It - Sweet & Tangy Oreos

Sweet and Tangy Valentine Oreos - Target
Let's skip the (mildly) dramatic build up and reveal. After all, the title completely gives my opinion away. This year, Oreo released festive Valentine's Day cookies with lots of great gimmicks, and a vague flavor description, "Sweet and Tangy." Thanks, Oreo. I hate it.

Beans & Soda, a Match Made in Heaven? Or Gastronomic Nightmare?

Serious Bean Co. Dr. Pepper Baked Beans - Walmart
Dr. Pepper & Baked Beans Sitting in A Tree, F-A-R-T-I-N-G.
Despite the fact that they are popular enough to warrant several shelves in the grocery store, I feel like people shy away from professing their affinity for baked beans. I guess it's because we all associate them with, you know,... the "aftermath." But they're my favorite grilled-food side dish and to see them paired up with one of my favorite sodas is pretty cool. 
When I first saw this post by The Impulsive Buy, I got really excited. My favorite soda AND BBQ? Wait a minute, this combination isn't new at all!

Snow Cones in February

Project 7 Rainbow Ice Gum - Target 
I wasn't kidding when I said I picked up at least 6 new flavors of Project 7 during my blogging absence. Let's keep these reviews rolling! (It's still Tuesday, so technically I am still on time!)
So I don't know about the weather in your corner of the world, but it's been pretty crazy here in NJ. Last week it was 7 degrees Fahrenheit, this week? Sixty Five! I saw people wearing freaking shorts outside today! (I'm pretty sure the world is ending...) So since it, oddly enough, feels like it's spring, let's review something spring/summery. How about a snow cone?

This is one of the reasons why I love Aldi so much. Because they're batsh*t insane. 
They're releasing a line of 80's themed cheeses. Why? I have no idea, but I WILL be buying them ALL if they show up in my stores.  
According to their circular we have: 

  • Pour Some GOUDAOn Me
  • Total Eclipse of the HAVARTI
  • Girls Just Wanna Have FONTINA
  • Billie GOAT is My Lover
  • Sweet CHEDDAR of Mine
  • Wake Me Up Before You GOAT GOAT 

I just...I love this so much. It makes no sense and I am 100% here for it. Will you guys be picking these up? My NJ circular has these starting from Feb 3rd (today) to Feb 9th.

I'm A Dry-Cereal Advocate - Don't @ Me

Apple Cinnamon Toast Crunch - Target
I'm a dry-cereal advocate, but only for certain brands/lines. Take Cinnamon Toast Crunch for example. 
When in milk, all the granulated sugar and flavor-dust washes away to create a coveted cereal milk concoction mimicked by fancy foodies, but to get to it, you need to power through a lackluster soggy cereal situation. Now, I can appreciate some delicious cinnamon-infused cereal milk, but have you ever tried...just eating the cereal? I am now a 30+ year old future corpse adult, and I eat Ziploc baggies of dry cereal at work, and it's amazing. 
So far I have found the dry cereal rule to be true for both classic Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch, but what about Apple? Will this cereal will be the exception to the rule?
